Why Do We Keep Telling The Same False Stories About School Shooters?

Columbine to Chardon, our explanations for why students shoot their classmates are often misinformed, if not completely wrong. Dave Cullen has ways to stop the myth machine.

If there was one positive to emerge from the horrific school shooting in Chardon, Ohio, this week, it was that T.J. Lane, the alleged shooter, lived through the crime. In doing so, Lane may have inadvertently helped to slow the myth machine that kicks into gear after every similar attack.

In Chardon, it took just 24 hours for two storylines to emerge: that Lane was bullied, and that he was targeting specific students.

How to stop the next Columbine

Listening will save kids’ lives


By Dave Cullen / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

The burning question since news of another school shooting broke, this one in Chardon, Ohio, has been why? That’s a polite version of the question dearer to every terrified parent: How do we make it stop?

After each tragedy, I get inundated by parents and reporters searching for “warning signs.” Surely, kids crazy enough to shoot their classmates are whipping out a daily flurry of “red flags.”

Actually, no. Very few are crazy. They are not acting insane. We cannot quarantine them or profile our way out of this problem. But there is another way.

We can only hope that there are people out there who are listening.

Dave will make an appearance on BOOK IT with Alan Goldsher, on Thursday 9/13/12 at 6 PM EDT.

http://shindig.com/event/bookit-cullen

Dave, the author of "Columbine," and I are going to discuss, among other things, how the hell he wrote such a freaking good book. He'll also take live, real time questions from you, the viewer.

I did a bunch of TV shows after Newtown, and I created links to the big ones on the top of this page:
